Photographer's Note

Ko Phi Phi has hit hard by the tsunami. This lookout would have been a safe place on Boxing Day 26/12/2004. Over 1000 died on Ko PP. The tsunami hit from the west on the right & swept right across the isthmus. A 2nd surge then hit from the opposite direction. Phuket Island is about 30 km to the right. Taken in 1995, before uncontrolled resort development took off.

The bay on the right is very shallow & is an exposed coral reef at low tide. The tour boats mostly used to dock in the deeper left bay.
